Late Night W

Beckett had a no-hitter through 5, though it was still 0-0 because we'd stranded a lot of runners. Top 6, we get two runs. Bottom 6, a Balty chop to the left of the mound that Beckett seemed to have no intention of making a play on (didn't get into position, didn't bare-hand, maybe he thought Dustin was gonna run into him), and he bobbles it, taking away any chance of getting the guy. Base hit. But he's still got the shutout...until Torii "There's No I In Team But There Are Plenty In Torii" Hunter hits a 2-run dong to center. Tied in the 7th. In the 8th, we load the bases, but Drew can't make contact with one out, and Pedroia pops out to end the inning.

It goes XXXtra. Top 11, at 1:30 a.m., Gonzalez hits an RBI single, driving the Soxy crowd wild, as the California people have long since moved on to other things. Then after two rundown plays, one we mess up and one they mess up, it's bases loaded, one out, Lowrie up, and he lines one to center. Very close play at the plate, but Pedroia's in there, and it's 4-2 us on the sac fly.

Bottom 11: Papelbon in. Gives up a perfectly placed bunt single with one out. Then with two out, he finally strikes out Kendrick on a long at bat to end it. 4-2 11-inning WIN!!!!!!!
